Football best betting tips for Iceland – England
We are heading to the beautiful country of Iceland where on Saturday the Vikings will face England in the capital Reykjavik. This is a game from Group 2 of League A of the UEFA Nations League. It’s a first game in the competition for both teams for the new season. Let’s preview it in our football best betting tips.
Iceland finished third in their group during the Euro 2020 qualifiers, so they will have to participate in playoffs in order to reach the tournament. Before this, Iceland could make a really good warm-up and test their skills in the Nations League.
The Swedish manager Erik Hamren chose his squad for the first two matches in the Nations League. Hamren called some of the players who are currently playing in Europe’s top leagues. Among them are CSKA Moscow’s Magnusson, Bologna’s Baldursson, Brescia’s Bjarnason, Paderborn’s Friðjónsson and AZ’s Guðmundsson. Iceland have a really decent team, although they don’t really have any big stars in the squad.
England are ready to keep impressing under the management of Gareth Southgate. The Three Lions qualified for the Euro 2020 without much of a struggle and now they have a new challenge ahead.
Southgate trusted some of the young guns when he made his squad for the Nations League games. Talented gems such as Phil Foden, Mason Greenwood and Tammy Abraham got called up. Meanwhile Southgate also called players like Leeds United’s Phillips, Wolves’ Coady, West Ham’s Rice and Southampton’s Ward-Prowse. These are some interesting decisions made by the manager.
What do we expect in our football best betting tips? England are the obvious favourites here, especially given the fact how good they are performing under the management of Gareth Southgate. At the same time you should not forget that Iceland are always a team very hard to beat. They are tough and most probably they will show it again.
